MarkP and Padaes, lovely captures.
And yes,it is also a great lens on crop sensor cameras aka almost 35mm.

MarkP, thanks for your (as always) excellent photos posted in this thread and most particularly for #6 = spectacular and #10 = utterly spectacular!
After some indecision I went ahead and bought a 24 Elmar earlier this afternoon, before finding and reading this thread, your lovely shots confirm my decision to buy.

The 24 Elmar is, according to datasheet published by Leica, a technically extremely good lens. However, the 24mm FOV seems not "wide enough" quiet often for landscape and architecture, in which case 21mm or wider may be better choice. I am thinking about getting a 24 Elmar or Zeiss 25/2.8 biogon since I am using a film MP with 0.58x viewfinder, and 24/25mm FOV seems to be the widest I can use without an external viewfinder (I'm going to use the outer frame of the viewfinder as composition frameline).
